Clinics & Services

INR CLINIC

Patients who take the anti-coagulation drug Warfarin need a regular blood test called an INR to monitor the dose of Warfarin they need to be taking. We have a dedicated clinic called the INR Clinic that is held on Monday and Thursday afternoons where a fingertip blood test is taken from the patient. The sample is then immediately tested using a small device called a CoaguChek System. The result takes less than 1 minute to process and the trained clinic staff then follows a protocol to give instructions about the dose of Warfarin the patient should continue on and when the next blood test is due. The next appointment may be booked at the same time.

The CoaguChek System was kindly donated by the ” Friends of Chawton House”. 

MINOR SURGERY

Minor surgical treatment is available on Wednesday mornings for conditions not requiring the facilities of a main hospital. We also hold a clinic on Friday mornings for joint injections.

WELL WOMAN HEALTH SCREENING

These clinics are held at various times during the week with the practice nurse.  We recommend that all women from 25 years to 64 years  have regular cervical smear tests.

A reminder will be sent to you by the Health Authority when your smear is due and the test will be carried out by the practice nurse.  At this appointment the nurse will also give you advice on your general health and on breast self-examination.  Please inform us of any change of address.

CONTRACEPTION/FAMILY PLANNING

A full range of confidential advice and services including emergency contraception are available by appointment with the doctor or practice nurse. You can also get more information about local services by going to www.letstalkaboutit.nhs.uk.

ANTE-NATAL CLINICS

Maternity care is shared between your doctor and the midwife. If you think you are pregnant, please make an appointment to see your doctor, who will book you in to the appropriate hospital. Throughout your pregnancy you will be monitored by the midwife and at the surgery by your doctor.
